Why Riga is definitely worth a visit

Are you looking for an interesting city that is ‘off the beaten track’ for your annual incentive? Then Riga is the place to go. This modern city in a medieval atmosphere is surprisingly accessible and affordable, offering many good restaurants and lively outdoor wining and dining.

Last May, our Corporate Events team organised an incentive trip to Riga for 50 people. After a 2.5-hour flight, the participants arrived in the Latvian capital. In old Soviet-era cars, they were then driven to the Pullman, a 5-star hotel in the heart of the city. 

After an extensive lunch, they went for a walk through Riga’s lively city centre. Along the way, the guests took part in various workshops and tasted local specialities, such as Black Balsam (liqueur) and birch sap.

In the evening, the group enjoyed a beautiful organ concert and a flash mob in Riga Cathedral. This was followed by dinner in one of the city’s many great restaurants. Riga promotes itself as a culinary capital, and rightly so! After this successful first day, two more great days followed, full of exclusive activities and culinary highlights.
